Hermetically sealed circular connectors for aerospace applications introduced by API

ORLANDO, Fla., 21 Feb. 2013. API Technologies Corp. in Orlando, Fla., is introducing a family of hermetically sealed circular connectors for aerospace applications with high differential pressure.

These connectors meet MIL-DTL-38999 fine leak requirements and are for aerospace engine control, hydraulic, and caustic environments in harsh operating conditions.

The connector's receptacle has a seal of 10-7 cubic centimeters and comes in filtered and unfiltered versions. They are appropriate for any application where unfiltered custom mechanical variations or filtering are required with a ruggedized seal, company officials say.

"These connectors protect against changes in atmospheric pressure and exposure to humidity, grime, and chemicals," says Larry Howanitz, vice president of electromagnetic integrated solutions and sensors at API Technologies.
